Leader of the Opposition Lal Kishenchand Advani on Tuesday said the United Progressive Alliance government had only scored a numerical victory and not a moral victory.

"There is something like numerical legitimatcy and moral legitimacy. The government scored the numerical victory, but lost on moral grounds," Advani told reporters after Manmohan Singh [Images] government won the trust vote.

Advani said the UPA victory only validated the theory that money power was used to secure votes.

"Earlier, there were only suspicions but today's episode has validated the fact that money was used," Advani said.
